Can Someone Explain To Me How To Get My Gift Back


As a child I could see and speak to spirits but with no one to explain to me that they are not at all harmful and need our help I shut it down from complete terror. I have sense only retained my empathic side but it feels like I have a hole in me that can not be filled by anything.

I "KNOW" deep down inside that I am meant to help these lost spirits its not a guess I know this is what I'm meant to do. The only thing I don't know is how to get my gifts back my sight and hearing to communicate with them once again. I am in desperate need of help and guidance from anyone that can. I know this was brief but I feel I need help soon I don't know why but that is how I am feeling. I can feel them around me and their emotions but that's as far as I get and sometimes their emotions effect my own.

I feel lost and have tried almost everything. I have tried meditation and all these other programs out there and all it has accomplished is a loss of money and more grief. This has effected my concentration all throughout school and even now with my job fiance and her two kids.

One of her kids are gifted as well and he is feeling very terrified like I did at his age and it hurts me deeply not to be able to help him like I should. He is also showing the same signs I did acting out no concentration and anger. I don't know what to do or say or how to help him if I can't even help myself PLEASE HELP! Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, and I hope someone has gone through the same and can guide me through this because it has effected my entire life; causing me to not be the best man I know I can be for my family and my self.

Hey halflightened,

I've got a couple pointers for you:

1. As lilylove & others have said, you need to get rid of your early fear for spirits. Even though your conscious mind is saying they aren't bad, your subconscious is.

One of the easiest ways to help get over your fear is walking through a cemetery or graveyard during the day - it might feel a bit strange, but behind the scenes, this is helping you out.

Another place you can try (if cemeteries are not your thing), is an antique shop - Usually, a large number of the objects inside the shop have deceased owners, and it's a pretty good spot for ghost hunting and buying - getting associated with an entity's energies is another step to reducing the fear.

2. Meditation can also help, but without focus, you won't get anywhere (Meditation is a tool, not a cure all). In general, meditation is meant to be "you time", where you can work out problems. Now, if you want to use it to communicate with spirits, then you need to think about this while relaxing.

3. You can't force the abilities to "come back", but have to let them return on their own. Every psychic that I know of has had "lull periods", where it seems like their abilities have gone dry (I experience this now & then with astral projections). Usually, I treat these as a vacation from being psychic; when they "come back online", I feel like I have more focus on what I want to achieve. Think of it as being given a "vacation" of sorts.

4. The easiest way to not be afraid is to realize that no matter how frightening the entities are, you still have power over them - even negative spirits won't mess with you if they feel that the tables can be turned against them.

One thing both you and your kid can do is work on shielding. This will allow you to create a "barrier" between you and what's bothering you. It's also fairly easy to accomplish, as you don't even need to be psychic to do it.

This is a basic technique:
1. Take a couple breaths to relax (deep and slow). Take as long or as little as you need to relax.

2. Picture yourself surrounded by a bright, white light. Make it as real as possible.

If white light is too hard, then try using another sense that may be easier. For example, FEEL the warmth of the light as it pools around you. HEAR the roar of the light as it pours around your body. SMELL the light as it takes on your favorite fragrance.

Also, the light can be any color you chose; it doesn't even have to be light! Make it a guard dog, or even a glowing sword.

3. Continue doing the above, until you feel safe and at ease.

The reason this works is because you are making this "shield" personal to yourself, which is in effect preventing the entity/influence from getting to you.

I can see auras easily not all the time but easily. I will give him as much time as he needs and telling him my experience is a great idea.

Meditation doesn't always help in the beginning. I remember when I was trying to regain my abilities when I was 11. And you can imagine how much an 11 year old wants to sit still and do nothing. Try to gain an energy sight, any kind, because when you learn to s one energy you start seeing energy beings as well. I'd suggest seeing auras because it's very similar to seeing spirits. There are some very usefull exercises on this page
As for your fiance's son try to stay near him, like lilylove said, let him know that you are there for him. Tell him you know what's happening. That you had his same gift. If he won't open up to you, you should make the first steps and tell him some of your experiences. I hope this helps you

Always let him know that you are there for him no matter what.
When he is ready he is ready. Just be patient

Yes it would as soon as he can write. I think if there is some way I can get him to sit still long enough lol maybe I can reach him. I can still feel others feelings including him, and maybe if I can get him to feel safe with me he will slowly start to trust me.

If he doesn't feel like talking about it then maybe you should try giving him a journal to write in. He can write down all his fears, worries and one day if he is ready, he may let you read the journal so you'll understand how he feels. But a journal would be good for him.

Thank you very much! Its not that meditation doesn't work for me, I just haven't found my personal technique/touch. As for her son, we'll eventually my son, I have tried many times to get him to open up to me about it but he is just like I was as a kid. He feels asif he is alone and his mind runs tons of things at once which doesn't help talking to him. I was the same way but decided not to take the medication needed for it and I won't make him either. No attention span whatsoever lol.

If you honestly feel like you are meant to help these spirits then you need to conquer your childhood fear.
Your fear is still creating an emotional wedge in your mind which is preventing you from your using Clairvoyant ability.
You have to face fears and overcome them in order to use your Clairvoyant ability.
Developing your psychic abilities is a journey of rediscovery and self discovery: rediscovering your inborn psychic ability and discovering who you are and where you are going. Once you understand this, you can begin to move forward. So where do you start? You start by crossing the line between your non-psychic side (your psychical self) and your psychic side (your thoughts) .

I know you wrote meditation didn't work for you but meditation does help develope your psychic abilities because it puts your mind in a relaxed and receptive state. You can only develop your psychic abilities with your mind not your body.
Try this meditation exercise
Its about facing fears.

Imagine yourself standing before a large blackboard.
Take the chalk and draw your problems or question.
Visualize yourself taking a step back from the blackboard. Look at your fears and tell yourself you are no longer afraid.
Take the eraser and erase all your fears off the board and imagine yourself feeling light, refreshed, and confident. Then imagine yourself leaving and feeling confident.
Open your eyes and trust that the problems have been resolved.
Keep telling yourself in the days ahead that you have the understanding and confidence you need to face any challenge life throws at you.

You can help him by encouraging him not to be afraid. Tell him that Spirits can't harm him at all. Introduce him to meditation because meditating does help with psychic ability but it also can make him mentally stronger and it would help him emotionally with his fears.
